Feast of Saint Joseph

Today is a good day.  It is the feast of the great husband of Mary, foster father of Jesus, Patron of the Universal Church, and my patron, too. Today also marked the coronation of His Holiness, Pope Francis, Supreme Pontiff, Patriarch of the West, Vicar of Christ, Servant of the Servants of God and all that.

I also was privileged to serve a Missa Cantata in the so-called Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, which is at least 1700 years older than I am.

God bless you all on this feast day!

St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, pray for us!

What a beautiful, beautiful depiction (in stained glass?) of St. Joseph with the Christ Child. Thank you.
